2008 Buick LaCrosse Review Ratings
2008 Buick LaCrosse CXL Review
None of he Buicks I have owned have ever needed warranty work.
Could use more Headroom
Over All, A Great Car, Although I Liked The Lesabre Much Better. — --Excellent performance. --Excellent fuel economy. (3.8 l V6) --Excellent handling in winter ice and snow conditions. --Comfortable seats, can drive long distances without undue strain or fatigue. --Comfortable car to drive as opposed to "fun". It is not intended to be a sports car. --Would have liked a sun roof option.
Primary Use: Family transportation
2008 Buick LaCrosse CX Review
Good engine, decent handling, comfortable interior
Old man's styling, horrid resale value
A Surprising Buick. — To be honest when I first saw this car, I had negative impressions of it. I thought it was going to be like the stereotypical Buick which I consider only worthwhile for an elderly person. Turns out the Allure(Canadian name) was not the car I feared and that its the Lucerne that had this. The Allure drives alright for such a large vehicle(almost questionable why the Lucerne exists). It has the same 3.8L V6 as the Grand Prix but more refined and controlled. It also seems to handle better than the Grand Prix surprisingly. The interior is full of colour despite being conventional. The build quality seems to be pretty good and I haven't seen any of these cars have an issue. Its big inside, the trunk is big...not much else to say. The resale of these cars stink, its great to buy used but awful buying new and selling early. Still for the smallest Buick, I think its a better value than the Lucerne. I might appreciate this car more if I was much older. From the perspective of a younger person, this car seems to be like a Pontiac Grand Prix but with far less of the drawbacks, the only downside is the styling fitting for the Buick brand.

This Is One Beautiful Car Compared To The Regal Gs I Drove On The Same Day
There was absolutely nothing i didn't like about this car, and that's a fact or you'd hear it from me. I was able to drive the Touring Edition and I'll tell you what, this is it. Scratch the Regal off... Read More

You couldn't ask for better handling. Takes off and accelerates with ease. I feel extremely safe in driving this car. It's luxury at it's finest. Who knew you could own a vehicle classified as a sedan... Read More

A solid sedan from Buick, but I'd highly suggest the 3.6L engine, as the 3800 is unrefined and underpowered. Read More
